It Will Soon Be Raining Cats and...Tigers?

Author: Mosquito Squad of Franklin & Framingham

It’s March 2014 and believe it or not, mosquito season here in Central Mass is right around the corner. While mosquito used to be pesky, there were a few ways to avoid getting eaten up by mosquitoes. Basically the early evening barbecue was a bad idea unless you had a private stock of citronella candles. After all, mosquitoes feed mostly at dusk right? That’s not always the case any more. There are new breeds of mosquitoes here in Central Mass that are more aggressive than the typical pesky mosquito – some will even breed during the day.

Asian Tiger mosquito and MA Cattail mosquito

The Asian Tiger mosquito and Cattail mosquito are two new predators whose eggs are will be lurking right around every corner as soon as the first signs of spring hit. They don’t need a hot summer day to swing into action. Some say that temperatures a little over 50 degrees will trigger mosquito season. Both of these new mosquito breeds are very hearty breeds and are not easily eliminated using traditional mosquito control techniques. Both breeds are very aggressive. The Asian Tiger mosquito is also a day feeder. Whereas a typical mosquito can be easily swatted away, these breeds will require more aggressive treatment than swatting and periodically applying sprays and chemicals to you, your children, and your dogs and cats.
